Class Of 1910, Celebrated 

A Great 25th Reunion 

At the Annual Alumni Reunion the 
Class of 1910 was in the limelight, cele- 
brating their twenty-fifth anniversary. 
Many of the members who are married 
brought their wives and a regular 
family get-together was held. The 
class boasts of several members who 
have gained prominence in national 
and state affairs as well as others in 
theii respective professions. They 
proudly refer to themselves as "the 
great class of 1910." 

A meat deal of credit is due Maj. 
O. H. Saunders for his efforts in ar- 
ranging the Reunion and also the com- 
pilation of "THEN AND NOW 
BOOK" for the class. The book was 
dedicated to Colonel Conley, who was 
commandant of the cadets back in the 
days of 1910. A copy of the book 
has been presented to the University 
and the Alumni Office 

A picture of the class will be found 
on page 1.

outstanding leader, thrived at College 

Park during the year under the direc- 
tion of Charles I.eKoy Mackort. More 
than 650 male students took part in 
the varied events.

His Excellency, Harry W. Nice, 
Governor of Maryland, delivered the

nasium. The Gym was elaborately 
decorated and the famous Show Boat 
Band, Jack Bruce of Pittsburgh, ren- 
dered the music for all occasions.

held on Sunday, May 26, in the Audi- 
torium with Rev. Henry Whiting, '31, 
delivering the address.

Cuckeyson and Webb Gain 

Loading Athletic Awards 

Bill Guckeyson, a soph who came 
from Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Md., 
High, and Walter Webb, a junior 
from Vienna, Md., were awarded the 
main athletic prizes of the year. 

Guckeyson, football and basket-ball 
star, who broke the javelin and 
discus marks and hurled the shot win- 
ning; distances in doing his big bit for 
the track team, was awarded the gold 
watch given by the class of 1908 for 
excellence in athletics and the man 
who typifies the best in athletics. He 
was the third soph ever to be so 

For the benefit of the "Old Timers," 
Zeke Bailey and Andy Nisbet were 
the other two. 

Webb received the Charles L. Lin- 
hardt ring for the Maryland man who 
was outstanding in athletics for the 
year. He has been an exceptional box- 
er for two seasons and is a letter man 
in lacrosse. 

Pair of Four-letter Men 

Produced in Single Year 

Maryland produced two four-letter 
athletes, the first as far as is known 
to reach such heights, during the 1934- 
35 term. 

Norwood Sothoron, who was forced 
to give up baseball with a fractured 
arm with six games yet to be played, 
had done enough duty to add a dia- 
mond insignia to the ones he had won 
in football, basket-ball and lacrosse. 
He was All-Southern in football and 
Ail-American in lacrosse. 

Bernie Buscher, who was only a 
junior during the past term, followed 
closely in Sothoron's footsteps, as he 
qualified for his baseball letter a coup- 
le games later. He already had won 
the "M" in football, basket-ball and 

Sothoron, though, was a regular in 
football, lacrosse and baseball, while 
basket-ball was the only sport in 
which Buscher was a full-time first 
stringer, although highly valuable in

in «huh the] ran in scoring over ten of the best teams in the Nation in the Penn relay carnival at Philadelphia on April 
27. All are Maryland boys — Evans from HyattsviTie, Archer from Bel Air. Widmyer from Hagerstown, and Headley from 
College l'ark. Their time was 3:28.8, near record figures. 

Their feat was the outstanding 
achievement of the best track season 
Maryland ever has enjoyed that in- 
cluded winning five of six dual meets 
and many notable triumphs indoors 
and outdoors. A mile relay team, 

composed of Archer, Sonen, Headley 
and Evans, also beat Princeton and 
Vale in the New York A. C. indoor 
games and won both the indoor and 
outdoor Southern Conference champ- 
ionships, setting a mark of .3:18.7 in 

the last named. 

In fact, the members of the 1934-35 
team broke SO many records that a list 
of the all-time University marks is 
given on this page. All told they set 
eight new marks and tied one. 

Varsity Athletes Capture 
69 Per Cent Of Contests 

Maryland had a fine year in athlet- 
ics, one which would be gratifying 
to any institution and a record that 
not many match. 

Taking part in 78 Varsity contests 
during I the Old Liners won

ist. Which way the wind blows on a 
March dawn and with what speed 
usually; how to unscramble the code 
flashing of radio beacons emanating 
from the little airport at Ogallala, 
Nebr., on the "N" side of U. S. High- 
way No. 30"; and whether the landing 
field at Cow Creek, Oreg., can supply 
him with gasoline having an octane rat- 
ing of 81 — these are matters, however, 
of more than ordinary interest to the 
traveler who mainly has clouds for 

Information Bureau Set-up 
In order to answer the questions of 
licensed pilots in the United States, 
who have grown in numbers from none 
in 1903 to 1 1,037 at the present time, 
some sort of central information bu- 
reau had to be set up. The result has 
been the establishment of the Bureau 
\ir Commerce, a clearing house of 
data pertaining to flying fields and air 

Over the air, telegraph, telephone 

and teletype, from each of the regis- 
tered airports comes constantly a Hood 
of varied information: improved land- 
ing facilities; changing meteorological 
conditions; hangars in process of con- 
struction; altered code Hashes of I 

cons, times of their broadcasting, and 
topographical aspects of the fields. All 

this matter comes into the hands of 
Groves for immediate dissemination in 
the form of pamphlets, bulletins, let- 
ters and answers to inquiries by tele- 

Periodically the bureau issues a fat 
airway bulletin, called "Descriptions 
of Airports and Landing Fields in the 
United States." Besides a section 
dealing with general airway informa- 
tion, which in itself is a fascinating 
story and an encyclopedia of aerial in- 
telligence, it contains 48 other divisions 
for the states, and is broken down into 
subdivisions for each of the airports 
within those states. 

Full of Airport Lore 
Besides aiding in the editing of this 
bulletin, Groves' main concern is the 
accumulation and correlation of data 
about proposed and current changes 
in all existing fields, and acquisition of 
full information about new fields re- 
cently registered or in process of con- 
struction. This information goes out 
from his department in the form of 
weekly notices to airmen all over the 
nation and keeps the larger airway 
bulletin up to the minute. 

As a consequence of years of han- 
dling this mass of detail Groves is a 
walking tome of sky harbors lore. A 
map of the United States to him is a 
vivid graph of curved lines, arrows, 
dots, and numbers, all a system of ceru- 
lean shorthand denoting distances 
across country from one airport to an- 
other, wind directions and speeds about 
the ports, and minute physical topogra- 
phy on and around the landing fields. 
Literally, every dot on the two blue- 
prints and aerial-topographical map, 
each for every one of the airports in 
the United States, kept on file in the 
bureau, has a meaning all its own for 
Groves — haystacks, water towers, stee- 
ples and ruts in the runway stand out 
photographically in his mind. It is his 
business, when one of the average of 
20 requests per day comes in to the bu- 
reau — from army, navy, commercial 
and transport pilots, individual plane 
owners and oil companies — to give any 
and all information desired in the mat- 
ter of air travel. His department is the 
triple A of the airplane world. 

All Requests Given Attention 

Requests for airport information 
come in from all over the world, and no 
request is too large or small to go un- 
heeded. A recent request asked for 
weather reports, code flashes and ele- 
vations of all beacons, sketches of the 
fields and topographical maps of the 
country between 30 separate airports 
and landing fields in five Southern 
States from Tennessee to Louisiana. 
The data went out the same day, com- 

Another individual, a topographical 
engineer, desired all maps, charts and 
information which would aid him in 
assembling a complete airways map of 
the State of Iowa. On the same day 
a rancher in Western Texas wrote in 
that he had put the finishing touches 
on a private landing field and. inclosing 
aerial photographs and ground charts, 
advised the bureau that his field was

With 16 Letter Men Available, Maryland Is Looking 

To Approaching Football Campaign With Optimism 

F already is in the air. 

and Maryland is looking optimisti- 
y to the 1935 season with the out- 
look that it will have one of its best 
ns in years. 

ng only Norwood Sothoron, all- 
hern back, and John Simpson, all- 
nard, from its 1934 regulars 
and returning most of its leading re- 
serves. Maryland should be tough to 
lick, although its schedule of taking 
on St. John's of Annapolis, Virginia 
l, North Carolina. Y.M.I.. Florida. 
Indiana, Washington and 
>wn and Syracuse in that 
order, is a herculean task, especially 
in view of the fact that its squad al- 
ways has limited talent in comparison 
to its b:_ 

NN ill He Experienced 

Maryland's 193S team will be a mix- 
ture of seniors and juniors with little 
chance of a sophomore breaking into 
the line-up unless he displays unusual 
talent. Sixteen of the 21 letter men 
and li> of the leading: 2ii gridders of 
I are due back and the 19 are al- 
most certain to play just about all the 
ball for the Old Liners in the 
schedule that opens with St. John's. 
an old state rival, on Septembei 
at College Park, and ends with the 
game with Syracuse in the Baltimore 
:ium on Thanksgiving Day. 
Maryland's bulwarks for the 1935 
campaign will be: 

Louis Ennis, Vic Willis, Charlie El- 
linger and Bernie Buscher, ends; 
John Birkland and Carl Stalfort, 
tackles: Ed Minion and Charlie Calla- 
han, guards; Bill Andorka, center; 
Jack Stonebraker, Bill Guckeyson,

Five Letter Men Lost 
In addition to Sothoron and Simp- 
son. Earl Widmyer and Dick Nelson, 
backs, and Steward McCaw, jruard, are 
r men of 1!».'J4 who will be great- 
ly missed. Nelson was one of the best 
throwers in Dixie. 
Wills, all-Southern end last fall and 
■n and Minion, who along: 
with him were on the all- America 
honor roll, should be conspicuous in 
play next fall, as should Stone- 
braker. a flashy and versatile back.

In tact, the total experience of the 
23 candidates on the Freshman squad 
last fall as high school players was 
just l!!> seasons, an average of only 
1 '.( seasons per man. eleven being en- 
tirely new to the pastime. However, 
that is characteristic of yearling 
squads at Maryland as football is 
not played in the country high schools 
of the State, being fostered only in 
Baltimore. Frederick, Hagerstown and 
Cumberland and then not comparable 
with the big high schools of the North

States Navy has been the expcrii I 
of Lieut. \V. (;. Townsend, '88, M. 1».. 
during his twenty-three years of serv- 
ice. This, it is believed, is a record 
for examining surgeons of the Navy. 
Entering the service in 1912, Lieuten- 
ant Townsend has spent his entire 
time in Baltimore as a dry land sailor 
as he never had sea duty. Prior to 
entering the Navy, he examined ap- 
plicants for the U. S. Marines. Fol- 
lowing his graduation in 1888, he en- 
tered private practice, until in 1900 
when he joined the medical unit of the 
old Fourth Regiment of the Maryland 
National Guard. 

Dr. Townsend recalls having exam- 
ined all of the first eight hundred men 
from Maryland to enter the Navy 
following the United States' entrance 
into the World War. Prior to his re- 
tirement, Lieutenant Townsend said, 
"I can say, without fear of contradic- 
tion, that we're (Navy) getting the 
cream of American men, educated, 
bright, energetic boys of the highest 
moral type."

Alumnae Represented 
Helen Beyerle Habich, a graduate of 
'27, in the College of Home Economics,

came to the Cole residence. 

Various Sections Represented

t oaches Form Council 

In addition to the Athletic Board, 
which will have full authority in all 
matters concerning athletics, there 
been organised an Athletic Coun- 
cil ■ n an advisory capacity. 
This council is composed of the coaches 
Hows: EL B. Shipley, head coach 
:>asket-ball and baseball; Faber, 
head coach of football and lacrosse; 
. Geary Eppley, head coach of 
track: Roy Maekert, professor of phy-

Each head coach will be responsible 
for his own sport, or sports, and will 
arrange his own schedule, or sched- 
ules, and have entire authority over 
his teams and their development, sub- 
ject to approval of the Athletic Board. 

All of the head coaches at Maryland 
are graduates of the institution, ex-

Point product both as an officer and 

Dobson is Experienced 

Dobson, who for 20 years was ath- 
letic director and all-around coach at 
the University of Richmond, comes to 
Maryland with a brilliant record back 
of him. Before going to Richmond, 
he was freshman football mentor at 
Georgia Tech, assistant coach at 
Georgia, and athletic director and grid 
coach at Clemson Coll' e 

However, it was at Richmond that 
Dobson, in spite of a lack of material 
that measured up to that of a great 
many of his opponents, compiled such 
an enviable record. During his stay 
there, he won a total of 582 conte 
lost 286 and tied li» in the four spi 
he handled — football, baseball, basket- 
ball and track. 

He was away from Richmond one 
year during his regime there, during 
the War, in rved as 

athletic director at Camp Jackson and 
coached the football team at Univer- 
sity of South Carolina.

Faber Sees Trio Of Tough 
Problems For Grid Squad 

ALTHOUGH he has It; letter men 
in his squad of 40, Jack Faber, 
head coach of the Maryland football 
team, sees three problems that must 
solved if the Old Liners are to cope 
anyway successfully with their tough 
Line schedule. 

Jack says that rinding a quarter- 
back to succeed Norwood Sothoron, a 
running guard to fill the shoes of John 

:., and producing winj 
to take the places of Sothoron, Kail 
Widmyer, Dick Nelson and Joe Crecca 
is going to be a real task. Nowadays, 
he points out, you have to have quite a 
few ball toters to stand the gaff. And 
Roy Maekert says, "Amen," to Faber's 

Maryland has eight letter winners 

among its liackfield talent, but tl 

is a scarcity of wing backs. 

Line Regulars Return 
All of the line regulars, except 
Simpson at left guard, are available, 
SO that the big task here will be to 
find replacements. 

It was noticeable last tall that t hi' 
Old Liners always went better when 
Sothoron was calling the signals, and 
in addition to being a tine general, 
he was strong in all other lin< 

Dick Nelson also was a tine ;■ 
and kicker, and his place will he hard 
to fill, especially from the heaving 

Yaeger still leave the Terps with two 
proficient hooters. 

Dobson will tit admirably into 
the coaching staff, but it will take 
quite a spell for him to acquaint him- 
self with thi' gridders, their traits and

Following graduation, he entered the 
employ of the Western Electric Com- 
pany, and in 1922 transferred to the 
A. T. and T., as equipment attendant 
at Troy, N. V. From Troy, he went 
to the general plant office in New York, 
where he remained until his appoint- 
ment as district superintendent at 
New Haven, Conn. In l ( J;i;>, he came 
back to New York as division plant 
engineer of Division 1.

in water and along shores. He knows 
the Chesapeake Bay country and has 
been captured by its romance. 

"Born and reared on the Eastern 
Shore of Maryland, he Learned tin- ways 
of the water and the men who work it 
at an early age. The curiosities of the 
oyster, the crab and the muskrat fas- 
cinated him. Ik' made friends with the 
birds and understood the fishes. He 
accumulated oyster beds, and muskrat 
lands of his own and made a success 
of them. 

"He entered the University of Mary- 
land where his experience, great nat- 
ural ability and the tenacity, that char- 
acterizes all watermen, made him an 
outstanding student and athlete, a 
worthy teacher and a renowned scien- 
tist. His life should be an inspiration 
to every farm youth who loves the out- 
of-doors and his message, a challenge 
to a water loving people. 

"Dr. Truitt is still a young man but 
already he has made a name for him- 
among American men of science; 
endeared himself to those whose good 
fortune it has been to work at his side; 
won the confidence and admiration of 
the great mas- of nun who make their 
living out of the water; and made a 
I lasting contribution toward the 

protection of our water resources so 
that future Americans may know the 
excellence of seafoods." 

Dr. Truitt divides his time between 
the University and the Chesapeake 
Marine Biological Laboratory, Solo- 
mons Island, Maryland, of which he is 
in charge. 


Army Officers Get Promotions 

All of the army officers assigned to 
the University were advanced in rank 
when President Roosevelt signed a War 
Department Bill during the past ses- 
sion of Congress. Maryland will now 
have a lieutenant colonel as professor 
of military science and tactics, who 
will be assisted by two majors and one 

Major Alvan C. Gillem is now Lt. 
Colonel Gillem at Fort Bennings, Ga. 
Col. Gillem completed his assignment 
at the University last June. He will 
be succeeded by Lt. Colonel J. D. Patch, 
formerly of the Army War College. 
Major A. A. Clark also a newcomer will 
succeed Capt. E. L. Upson, better 
known now as Major Upson. Major 
Upson has been transferred to Scho- 
field Barracks, Hawaii. 

Capt. Frank Ward is now Major 
Ward and last but not least, Lieutenant 
John W. Harmony is now Captain Har- 

While we have not heard from all 
Alumni who are in the army it is 
known that Major Lindsay Sylvester 
'11, is now a Lieutenant Colonel, Rob- 
ert N. Young, '21, became a Captain, 
and G. M. .Mayer, '06, is now Major 
Mayer. Others to be heard from. 


Class of 1935 Makes 

Gift To Library 

The Senior class of 1935 presented 
one hundred dollars to the Library for 
the purchase of books. With this 
money two valuable and interesting 
illustrated reference sets have been 
bought. The Pageant of America in fif- 
teen volumes and Traill's Social Eng- 
land in six volumes, a set now diffi- 
cult to secure. The books are placed 
in the Reading Room beneath a plate 
bearing the inscription "Presented by 
the Class of 1935."

during the early going. 

But as matters stood when this was

and as he was backed up by another 
soph, Mike Surgent, this one job seem-

.Maryland's Freshman football team. 
which Al Ileagy is fashioning out of a

games, the usual number, this fall. 

As in the past, many of the aspir-

All the others are sophs. 

Bob Walton (166), a center; John

This places seven sophs among the

DeArmey two, Surgent, Smith and Mc-

that the New York group is holding 
weekly luncheons, and great progress

by this group, which revived a8 the re- 
sults of the concerted efforts of M 
Sarah Morris. '24, Lionel Newcomer, 
'2b. and president Kielfer. 

The weekly luncheons are held each 
Wednesday at 8 Liberty Place, New- 
York City. Every Alumnus whenever 
he is in New York, is cordially invited 
to drop in for lunch between 12:00 and 
L:00 and meet the group. 



On August 29th, last, Ruth V. Reed, 
a graduate <>F '■;■;, ami a member of 

Kappa Delta, married Ernest A. 
Legath. The marriage took place in 
Allentown, Pa., where the newly weds 
plan to make their home. 

.Minna U. Cannon, '32, and Richard 

Wilson were married August 30th, at 
Emory M. E. Church in Washington, 
I). C. Minna was a popular member of 
Alpha Omicron Pi, and among her 
activities while at Maryland were 
captain and manager of rifle, secretary 
of Student Government, sponsor of 
Companies "R" and "0," Women's Edi- 
tor of Tin Terrapin, and a member of 
the Women's Senior Honor Society. 
* * * 

Margaret "Buddy" Cook, '31, mar- 
ried Wilbur L. Yearsley in Washington 
on June 21Hh. Mis Yearsley is a mem- 
ber of Alpha Omicron Pi, and Mr. 
Yearsley, graduated from the Univer- 
of Idaho. 

Ruth Miles, '31, and Mildred Kett- 
ler, '31, were bridesmaids, and Elgar 
Jones, '31, was organist. All are mem- 
bers of Alpha Omicron Pi. An inter- 
esting point is that little four-year 
old Anne Howard, who was flower girl, 
is the daughter of Edith Burn 
Howard, '29, also an A. O. Pi. 

"CHES" ADAMS, 10. RE- 

Twenty-five years hence a former 
graduate returns to the University 
; ii as a student. A. C. Adams, 
better known as "Ches," has a year's 
leave of absence from King College, 
tol, Tenn., where he is a professor, 
to take special graduate work in chem- 
istry at the University. 

"Ches" is a noted trackster of the 
early track days, also a letter man of 
the grid i ion. It was in 1910 when 
"Ches" was lead-off man for one of the 
greatest relay teams Maryland ever 
had. The team won several races and 
lost none. The members of that 
great team were, Adams, Munson, 
Ducket and Morris, and this is what 
the Reveille said about them: "The 
latter two are new additions and will 
be performers of a high standard. 

Adams and Munson are old standbys; 
.ins is a twentieth century ^!.; 
of a non-mythical Mercury and Munson 
is a red headed sod burner from 
Yankee land — a man it takes two 
people to see when in motion." 


Dobson A Magnetic Fellow 

Frank Dobson, the field coach of the 
grid squad, is a man of polish and per- 
sonality and is popular with everyone 
at College Park. He knows and loves 
his football and fits finely into the 
scheme of things at Maryland. 


Mrs. Dobson Is Real Fan 

Mrs. Frank Dobson, wife of the new- 
field coach of the Terps, never misses 
a football game in which her hubby 
is involved. She plans to see all the 
Terps' tilts. 


Variety Of Intramurals 

Twenty-three pastimes have been 
listed for intramurals at Maryland by 
Charles LeRoy Mackert, head of the 
physical education department. Arch- 
ery and Badminton are among the new 
ones. Much new equipment has been

Alumni Barbecue 

At noon the annual Alumni barbe-

hall diamond in the rear of the Ritchie 
Coliseum. Immediately following- lunch 
the wearers of the "M" will gather 
in the Trophy Room of the Coliseum

New Buildings in Use 

Returning Alumni will probably

new Girls' Dormitory will be occupied 

New Administration Set-up 

Under the reorganization system 
being carried on by the new adminis- 
tration, William M. Hillegeist, '12, 
has been appointed Director of Ad- 
missions for the entire University and 
Miss Alma Preinkert, '23, former as- 
sistant Registrar, becomes Registrar. 
"Hille," as he is called, was formerly 
Registrar of the University. Under 
the new plan he will determine as to 
whether or not candidates are ade- 
quately qualified for admission. This 
set-up is similar to the one now in 
effect at Columbia University. 

Finch On Flood Control 

In the U. S. Engineer's Office in 
St. Louis we find Harold W. Finch, 
'27, a graduate in mechanical engi- 
neering. Finch has been in charge of 
the design and manufacture of the 
roller gate chains of the flood gates 
for the St. Louis Dam. This dam is 
a part of the Federal Government's 
extensive Hood control project on the 
Mississippi. The dam will contain 
locks, making it the largest navigable 
dam in the world. When completed 
it will cost $3,000,000. An interesting 
note about the roller gate chains is 
thai each link in the chain weighs 

E pounds. Pinch, a member if A. 

T. <>.. recently visited the campus 
while on a short vacation. 

Baltimore and College Park 

Units To Have Get-Together 

A general program of events de- 
signed to further weld the relationship 
between the College Park and Balti- 
more branches of the University has 
been arranged under the direction of 
H. C. Byrd, Acting President. The 
entire plan, which has been approved 
by the University Senate, includes 
social, athletic and academic events, 
expected to bring together for the 
first time under such conditions, mem- 
bers of the faculty, the student body 
and alumni of botb units. 

The first event was held in Balti- 
more on Thursday, October 24, at 
the Emerson Hotel, as an informal re- 
ception. Acting President Byrd and 
the University Senate were hosts for 
the occasion. Many people prominent 
in the affairs of the State were pres- 


On October 7, pledge day for fra- 
ternities, the Greeks were in quite a 
quandary. They issued 346 bids, and, 
by the time Dean Johnson's office 
closed, only 90 had been accepted. 
There were 83 marked undecided and 
173 that were either rejected or un- 
called for. By October 14, the pledges 
increased bv 68, which made a total 
of 158. 

Alpha Gamma Rho— twelve, Alpha Lambda 
Tau —one. Alpha Tau Omega— thirteen. Delta 
ma Phi twenty-eight, Kappa Alpha twen- 
ty-six. Lambda Chi Alpha twelve. Phi Alpha 

ten. Phi Delta Theta — eight, Phi Sigma Kappa 
— twenty, Sigma Alpha Mu eight. Sigma Nu 
— eleven, Sigma Phi Sigma four, Tau Epsilon 
Phi — twelve, Theta Chi twenty-three. 

Even though this made a grand in- 
crease of one over the total of last year, 
the Greeks unanimously condemned the

Varsity Eleven Does Well 
In Its First Four Contests 

WITH three wins in the first four 
games, the Varsity football team 
did as well as expected. 

In these pames, St. John's was beat- 
en. 39 to ti; Virginia Tech, 7 to 0, and 
X' M T.. i) to 0. while a real drubbing. 
33 to 0, was taken from North Caro- 
lina's team that mav land in the Rose 

Maryland, off to a bad start in the 
Carolina game, with the Tarheels scor- 
ing three times in the first period, 
played on even terms the rest of the 
way and doubtless would have kept 
the count at 20 to but for two block- 
ed kicks. 

North Carolina Is Good 

ACTUALLY, North Carolina, one of 
the best teams ever developed in 
the South, was fully two touchdowns 
better than the Old Liners at their 

St. John's is not up to snuff thi- 
and did not offer any real opposition; 
Maryland outplayed Virginia Tech 
about three times as badly as the score 
indicates, while the V. M. I. game 
pretty much of a stand-off. The Old 
Liners marched 80 yards in the third 
period for the winning score. 

. the ruling ineligible of Bill 
Andorka, regular center, and AI Far- 
rell, reserve tackle, the day before the 

game threw the Old Liners somewhat 
off their stride for the tilt with V. M. 
I. on foreign soil. 

Doing Some Traveling 

WHEN this was written, Maryland 
was preparing for a jaunt to play 
the University of Florida in the Gators' 
Homecoming Day celebration on Oct. 
26, and were to meet Virginia in Char- 
lottsville Nov. 2 and Indiana in Balti- 
more Nov. 9, before taking on Wash- 
ington and Lee in the big day at Col- 
lege Park, Nov. 16. 

Last year's 16 letter men with the 
sophs: Mike Surgent and Bill Wolfe, 
guards, Frank DeArmey, center, and 
Blair Smith, L-nd, are playing most of 
Maryland's football.

many old grads returned to the 
campus for Homecoming. The pro- 
gram began Friday evening with the 
annual Homecoming dance in the Uni- 
versity Gym. More alumni were on 
hand than ever before, and especially 
more from the later cla 

Saturday morning the "alums," en- 
joying the fellowship of some of their 
former classmates, watched the Fresh- 
men football game with Washington

in favor of the young Generals, the 
girl tournament, and an intra-

Attention Alumni 

As the year 1935 is rapidly drawing 
to a close, let us start in time to make 
our new year's resolutions. There is 
one in particular every alumnus should 
make: "I will contribute something 
toward the support of my Alumni 
iation in 1'.' 

Every former student of the Uni- 
versity is automatically a member of 
the Alumni Association. In order that 
the ition may function and 

render some service to the University 
of Maryland and its graduates, it is 
very necessary that some financial 
help he given to keep th( ition 

from becoming dormant and use! 
At the present time many are riding, 
hut only a few are paying the freight. 
Others would gladly send in theil $2.00 
annual contribution, but procrastina-

Emesl N. Tory attended a meeting 
of the ancient South River Club, which 
is claimed to be the oldest social or- 
ganization in the United States, as a 
guest of Benjamin Watkins, Jr., a 
graduate of the class of '94. This club, 
which is limited to twenty-five mem- 
bers whose forebears were from Anne 
Arundel County, is probably unique. 
With little deviation they have main- 
tained the sequence and formalities of 
their meetings through all these years. 
The roster of the club carries many 
names famous in the history of Mary- 
land, and the minute book has been 
used continuously from 1742. The 
minutes, prior to that time, were burn- 
ed. Benjamin Watkins, Jr., and his 
father, now 95 years of age, are mem- 
bers of the club, and presumably Ben- 
jamin III, who graduated in '25, will be 
elected to the club when his grand- 
father passes on. Only the host for 
the day is allowed to have any guests 
and on September 19th, Benjamin, Jr., 
honored Fitzhugh Murray of Mayo, 
Stanley E. Day, '13, Benjamin Wat- 
kins, III, '2"), and Ernest M. Cory.

Hoard Holds Fall Meeting 

Recently the Alumni Board held its 

fall meeting in Baltimore with Dr. T.

Mem the Hoard present were: 

C. Walter die, '21; I'. W. Chichester,

Hanson .Mitchell, ';»K, former president 
of the Association; Lt. Col. L. M. Syl- 
vester, '1 1, former president of the "-M" 
Club, and Lewis W. Thomas, '28, Pres- 
ident of the "M" Club. 

One of the most important matters 
discussed was the Alumni membership 
subscriptions. The treasurer's report 
indicated that less than 10', t of the 
Alumni on the mailing list have con- 
tributed financially toward the associa- 
tion's current expenses. The Board, 
therefore, encounters this situation; 
unless more contributions are received 
the Association's program, which in- 
cludes the publishing of the Alumni 
News, will be greatly curtailed. 

Group meetings, grand reunions, and 
next spring class organizations were 
among other subjects to receive serious 

The Board favored the holding of a 
joint Alumni Bancpuet for the entire 
University as proposed by the pres- 
idents of the various associations. 
Those present then attended the dinner 
and meeting of Board members repre- 
senting the other organizations. 

New Group Active 

Don Keiffer, '28, president of the 
New York Alumni Group, brought 
encouraging news of the group's ac- 
tivity. Don and his committees really 
have things hopping in New York. 
A luncheon club has been started, and 
many Old Liners gather one day each 
week to swap yarns, at the Ship's 
Galley on Liberty Place. 

The fall meeting of the club was 
held November 23, at the Lexington 
Hotel, where dinner and a dance to 
the music of Ozzie Nelson was the 
program of the evening. 

They are planning another rally 
when the Maryland boxing team goes 
to West Point to exchange punches 
with the Army on February 22. Every 
alumnus in the vicinity should make 
a special effort to be present for this 
ting and give Don his addi'ess 
for notices of future meetings.

a fine spirit within the squad, that 
spelt such fine success for the Terp

individual feats that stood out. es- 
pecially those of Bill Guckeyson. rated 
among the great backs of the nation. 

Bill stepped 50 and 90 yards for 
touchdowns against Georgetown, and 
his kicking played a vital part in all 
of the games, notably in the Florida 
tilt in which he made three boots 
that totalled over 210 yards.

Has Increased Attention 

MANY ALUMNI are watching with 
increasing interest the progress of 
the University; anil it is well that 
they know some of the more important 
events that have taken place so far 
this year. 

There have been changes in the 
Board of Regents, with the resigna- 
tion of two members. George M. Shri- 
wr. and John M. Dennis, and the ap- 
pointment of new ones to their places. 
JuiL .Ivin Chesnut of Baltimore 

and Mr. H. H. Xuttle of Denton, Mary- 
land, have been added. 

Unit System 

Numerous additions have been made 
in the faculty personnel which you 
have read of in the previous issue. 
Emphasis has been placed, in this 
respect, on the English, Modern Lan- 
gua^: - logy and Philosophy de- 
partments. Also new. is the unit 

stem organized in the College of 
Arts and Sciences, to cut down scho- 
lastic mortalities in the lower classes. 
Charley White, '2'-). is in charge of 
this lower unit. By this system each 

'no nonofit of a faculty 

supervisor and the whole system is 
creating such favorable comment 
among students and faculty that it has 
been requested by members of the 
other colleges. The Arts and Sciences 
College is now in its new building, 
the largest on the campus. 

Building remodeling has caused a 
delightful transformation both in Bal- 
timore and College Park. In Balti- 
more, the old hospital is being re- 
vamped into a well equipped Dispen- 
sary. At College Park the new Arts 
and Science Building, the girls' dormi- 
tory, as well as the remodeling of the 
Dairy Building, stand out as high 
lights in improvements. 

Dairy Barns To Be Moved 
Of greatest interest, though, to us 
all, are the plans now in progn 
to remove the old dairy barns and 
build new ones north of the campus 
near Paint Branch. 

Work is about to begin on the ) 
Bureau of M 
which will be the best of its kind in this 
. .

Following the ceremonies the newly- 
weds embarked for a honeymoon trip 
to New Orleans by boat, visiting en 
route many balmy seaports.

tor Tydings, former president of the 
Alumni Association, joins the married 
men's rank of his class, leaving his

surviving member of the bachelor club. 

Last fall Senator Tydings purchased 
Col. Ritchie's former estate, the Oak- 
ington, in Balnk Manor in Baltimore 
County for the future home of the 

Football Movies 

Moving pictures have been taken of 
practically all football games this fall. 

Here is an attraction for alumni 
get-togethers to follow the Terrapins 
in action on the gridiron. The brilliant 
90-yard run of "Bill" Guckeyson in 
the Georgetown game, the touchdown 

nlni'c "froinof T^l *-\>-i A o o»-t'l »-\i«-»n»' -\tV(n»- 

sensational plays are clearly shown. 
The alumni secretary will gladly 
make arrangements to have these pic- 
tures shown before any alumni gather- 
ing upon request.

Alumni Grand Reunion 

Saturday. May 2, 1 :).'{(> 
( ollege Park, Md. 

B B unanimous vote at the annual 
meeting of the Alumni Association 
last year, it was decided to make this 
r, 1936, B diaml Reunion Year. 
It was also the desire of the Associa- 
tion thai a similar program to the one 
last year be held, which included the 
annual athletic Field Day events. 

The program actually begins Fri- 
day morning with the annual R. O. T. 
C. competitive drill, followed in the 
afternoon by the coeds' May Day pro- 
gram. In the evening, fraternities 
and sororities hold their annual Alum- 
ni meetings. On Saturday morning 
the Association convenes for the an- 
nual meeting, followed by a buffet 
luncheon and then a three ring circus 
of baseball, track, tennis, and lacrosse. 
To top off the day, an Alumni supper 
dance is held in the gymnasium. 

There will probably be a few changes 
in this program, but every alumnus 
should mark it on his calendar, "I will 
see my old classmates at College Park 
for a Grand Reunion." 

Phi Kappa Phi Elections 

At the fall meeting of the Univer- 
sity's chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi, 
national honorary scholarship frater- 
nity, the following students were 
elected to membership : 

William C. Warfield, of College

bury, Md., education ; Andrew Beve- 
ridge, of Berwyn, Md., engineering; 
Florence Rea, of Washington, home 

All are outstanding undergraduates 
with a scholastic average in the upper 
one-fifth of their class which is a re- 
quirement for membership.

Washington Alumni 

Form Luncheon Club 

The News is pleased to announce 
that the Alumni of Washington, D. C, 
have organized a Luncheon club which 
is the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of 
each month at the Harrington Hotel, 
1 1th and E Streets. N. W., at 12:30 P. 

Starting with a nuclei of about ten 
or twelve, the club has grown rapidly 
in two meetings to forty-five mem- 
bers. Temporary officers have been 
chosen as follows: Fred B. Linton, 
President, William Press, Vice-Presi- 
dent, and C. V. "Ditty" Koons, Secre- 
tary-Treasurer. Much of the impetus 
toward starting the club came from 
•Joseph Deckman, '30, former All- 
American lacrosse player and Alley 
Unger, '30, student leader. Both are 
engaged in newspaper work. 

The purpose of the club is to arouse 
Old Line spirit among the alumni. 
Every male alumnus is urged to at- 
tend. The following membership of 
the club is:

Nomination of Officers 

Often the question has been asked 
"How are nominations made for offi- 
cers of the Alumni Association?" 

The Constitution provides that a 
nominating committee be appointed by 
the Alumni Board to make nomina- 
tions for the various offices. This 
committee is chosen, giving as wide 
a representation as possible, and are 
asked to nominate alumni interested 
in the welfare of the association, and 
at the same time keeping in mind class 
and geographic location. 

It is customary for the vice presi- 
dent to automatically become presi- 
dent. The secretary-treasurer is usual- 
ly filled by someone at the University, 
who publishes the Alumni News and 
attends to the routine office work. 

This year there are four new mem- 
bers to be elected to the Alumni Board, 
a representative of the Colleges of 
Engineering and Arts and Science, and 
two members-at-large. Any sugges- 
tions from alumni will be appreciated 
by the Board as well as the nominat- 
ing committee.

Terp Boxers Are Stirred 
By Conditions of Defeat 

~\M ARYLAXD'S boxing season start- 
*■ -* ed out in lamentable fashion, not 
so much that the team lost to Catholic 
U., 3 5 2 to 4V2, but because of condi- 
tions highly unsatisfactory to the Old 
Liners that surrounded the affair. The 
matches were held in the Catholic U. 
gym in Washington. 

.Maryland did not agree with the de- 
cision that gave Walter Webb only a 
draw in the 145-pound class, was ab- 
solutely in disagreement with the one 
that handed defeat to Ivan Nedomatsky 
in the 155-pound division, and was 
dumbfounded at a kayo delivered John 
Gormley, light-heavy, when he was 
on his knees from a near spill on the 
slippery canvas. It was felt that 
both Webb and Nedomatsky won handi- 
ly and that Gormley should have been 
declared a victor on a foul. 

Ed Shegogue, 115, fighting his first 
bout, won by a decision; Tom Birming- 
ham, 125, scored a kayo; Morty 
Schwartz, 135, lost a decision; Mike 
Lombardo, 165, got a forfeit, and 
John Birkland, heavyweight, took the 
count. Nedomatsky, undefeated at 135 
pounds last year, fought two note 
above that weight, although he scaled 
only 152. 

Captain Jack Harmony, coach of the 
ps, however, may be depended upon 
to hring his team through thi 

gretable inaugural.

Stories of a mythical character usu- 
ally start by saying, "Once upon a 
time," but this is not a mythical story. 
It is a true one about Harry Clifton 
Byrd, graduate and president of the 
University; one who is best known by 
his old time friends and alumni who 
have fought for him and rubbed shoul- 
der to shoulder in many a battle, as 
just plain "Curley." 

He is a native of the Eastern Shore, 
born and raised in Crisfield. He 
began his bound to fame 30 years ago, 
by playing football for his Alma Mater 
in a ten-cent pair of stockings, and 
today heads the same University. 

• w years after graduation in 
- with honors, he returned to his 
Alma Mater as professor of English 
and coach of athletics. II

coach's bench to the president's chair 
of a University.

Impressive Record Wins 
Administrative Position 

FOLLOWING several months of de- 
liberation, the Board of Regents, 
on February 21, officially appointed 
Harry Clifton Byrd of the class of 
1908 as president of the University. 
Mr. Byrd has been acting president 
since the resignation of Dr. R. A. Pear- 
son in July, 1935, during which time 
some 50 candidates were considered 
for the position. 

Twenty-Three Years 
Mr. Byrd has been associated with 
the University in an official capacity 
for more than 23 years. He has ac- 
tually grown up with the University, 
for it was he who led a successful cam- 
paign in 1920 for the organization of 
a great state university. 

In the years he has served the school, 
recognition of his administrative abil- 
ity has steadily increased. Beginning 
as an English instructor, later director 
of athletics, then assistant to the 
president, vice-president, and acting 
president, his accomplishments spoke 
for him. 

Manx Changes Perfected 
During his term as acting president, 
Mr. Byrd perfected many construc- 
tive changes in the educational system. 
The departments of English Modern 
Languages, Sociology and Philosophy 
received many new and capable in- 
structors. A new system in the Arts 
and Science College was organized for 
the purpose of giving the students bet- 
ter supervision and a closer contact 
with faculty members. 

Additional appropriations have been 
received from the federal government 
for various improvements needed in 
the University. The Bureau of Mil 
broke ground and construction started. 
Many laudatory comments have 
come from various sections of the 
State, acclaiming .Mi. a com- 

petent administrator.

ster recipes received first prize in a 
national contest for original recipes, 
conducted by the Oyster Institute of 
America. The prize was a two week's 
trip to the Bermudas, where Dorothea 
will have the opportunity to observe 
the native menus and special dishes. 
It was pleasing to Carolyn to have her 
classmate conduct a class in the Elec- 
trical Institute, as Carolyn is an East-

Former Dean And Graduate 
Received National Recognition 

"Plant miracles have been discovered 
by Dr. Percy W'. Zimmerman, former 
dean of the College of Agriculture at 
the University of Maryland, and Dr. 
Albert E. Hitchcock, a former gradu- 
ate student in the same department. 
Their discoveries demonstrate wierd, 
almost gruesome effect produced when 
ms of growing plants are treated 
with one of 16 or more chemicals dis- 
covered," says Time. 

These substances, some of which are 
plant "hormones," may be placed in 
the soil, or applied directly to the stem 
of the plant. The first result is rapid 
rocketing growth, followed by the ap- 
pearance of roots at the site of appli- 

"Truly amazing is the only clear 
way to typify the discoveries!!!" com- 
mented Science Service. 

Last December, to the amazement of 
both Zimmerman and Hitchcock, the

vancement of Science rewarded their 
research with a cash prize of $1,000.

Commencement To Be 

June 6, At College Park 

By a large majority, the University 
Senate voted that all future commence- 
ments of the institution shall be held 
in College Park. 

The action of the Senate serves to 
settle a bitterly contested question 
which has caused heated argument be- 
tween students and faculty of both 
branches of the University. Prior to 
the commencement last year, the con- 
census of opinions was against joint 
commencement. The new- program, in- 
stalled last year, which provided for 
commencement in the morning, fol- 
lowed by a general get-together lun- 
cheon on the campus, received such 
favorable comment as to cause the re- 
cent action of the Senate. Last year's 
program will be duplicated this year. 

The University Senate is composed 
of the deans of both the College Park 
and Baltimore branches of the Uni-

Basket-Bail Season Offers 
Thrills And Develops Stars 

IT was an exhilirating season that 
Head Coach Burton Shipley, aided 
by -lack Faber, and the capable bas 
ket-ball si|ua<l provided for the Terp 
tan- ami others during the recent cam- 

Winning I". oul of 18 games during 
the regular schedule and breaking 
even in two hot Conference tourney 
lilts, the team compiled an enviable 

ord besides parading some clever 
individual talent. 

Maryland, the experts agreed, played 
tin- finest game the Conference tour- 
ney ever has seen in beating: Duke in 
the- opening round, 47 to 35, and also 
gave a fine exhibition in losing: to 
Washington and Lee in the semi-final 
the next night, 38 to 32. A little bet- 
ter luck on their shots might have 
given the Terps the edge on the (Jen- 
era Is. 

Buscher Highly Rated 
Bernie Buscher was placed on the 
Conference first team at forward, as 
well as on all of the picked teams in 
the Terps' home section, while Vic Wil- 
lis was on the Conference second quint 
at center and on other all-star out-fits. 
In fact, Paul Menton of the Evening' 
Sun, and others thought Willis should 
have been in the pivot job on the first 
Conference five. 

Al Waters and Waverly Wheeler, 
forwards; Charlie Keller and Fred 
Thomas, the regular guards, and John 
McCarthy, Bill Bryant and Ben Allen, 
who hails from the Pharmacy School 
in Baltimore, were the others on the 
squad. Buscher and Willis, each of 
whom scored 17!) points in the regular 
season, have completed their careers. 

Notable Triumphs 

Notable triumphs for the season 
were scored over Navy, Georgetown, 
Richmond University, Duke in the reg- 
ular schedule as well as in the tourney, 
Virginia and all State foes that were 
met -Washington twice, St. John's, 
Hopkins ami Baltimore University. 
In fact, the Terps established undoubt- 
ed supremacy in the State. 

The freshman team, tutored by Al 
Heagy, took a leaf out of the varsity 
hook and turned in 1.'! wins in 15 starts. 
I losl both its games to the George- 
town frosh, the first by two points and

Boxing Squad Much Better 
Than Cold Figures Indicate 

THE BOXING TEAM, with Capt. 
Jack Harmony coaching- for his 
farewell season, did not do as well in 
the won column as in his previous 
years hut he and the team pleased 
everyone in the know. 

Taking' only two out of seven meets 
does not appear so well on the surface 
but "officiating- breaks," that will not

showed in the indoor season a sam- 
ple of what may be expected of them 
outdoors when a few of the athletes 
did some fine work. 

The Terps wound up the indoor cam- 
paign by scoring- 20% points for third 
place in the Conference meet in which 
Warren Evans set a record of 52.4 for 
the quarter and the relay team of Bob 
Archer, Bill Thies, Frank Cronin and 
Evans created a new- mark of 3:31.8 
for the mile. The track in the Tin Can 
at North Carolina University where 
the meet was held is unbanked. 

Earlier in the year the relay team 
of Archer, Cronin, Evans and Coleman 
Headley stepped ahead of Amherst, 
Yale and Princeton in the Millrose 
games at Madison Square Garden in 
New York in the fast time of 3:27.2. 

Headley Runs Well 

Headley also ran second to Chuck 
Hornbostel in the Halpin half mile in 
the New York A. C. games and was 
just beaten out by Harry Williamson 
of North Carolina in the Conference 
meet. Headley was timed in 1:58.1 by 
Eppley. Cronin also pole vaulted 11 
feet 10 inches to tie for second place. 
He once cleared 12 feet 2 inches but 
evidently brushed the bar on his way 
down as it fell after he had landed. 

Joe Ryan also gave promise of pro- 
ducing in the sprints by running sec- 
ond in the Conference 60-yard dash. 

Evans, who is running better than 
ever before, and Archer wound up 
their careers with the indoor season 
and their loss will be keenly felt.

Famous Scientist To Study 

Chesapeake Bay Fisheries 

Under the auspices of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, an internationally 
famous scientist in the person of Dr. 
A. U. Valdykov, said to be one of the 
foremost fishery biologists in the 
world, has been secured for an eigh- 
teen month study of the Chesapeake 
Bay fisheries. According to Dr. R. 
Y. Truitt, '14, Professor of Aquicul- 
ture and Director of the Chesapeake 
Bay Biological Laboratory at Solo- 
mon's Island, negotiations have been 
completed and Dr. Valdykov is ex- 
pected in the early part of the summer. 
It is likely that headquarters will be 
established at the Laboratories at Solo- 
mon's Island. 

Senator Radcliffe, a native of the 
Eastern Shore and one who is keenly 
interested in the development of the 
seafood industry, gave his cooperation 
to Dr. Truitt and the University au- 
thorities in bringing Dr. Valdykov to 

Dr. Valdykov comes from the Bu- 
reau of Fisheries of the Canadian 
Government where he was serving on 
the Biological Board. 

In bringing Dr. Valdykov to Mary- 
land it is considered one of the most 
important steps taken in the advance- 
ment of this study.

n of the 

Field Day On Ma) 2 Is Sure 
To Offer All Kinds Of Thrills 

BIGGER and better, as the circus 
men would say, Mai viand's nine- 
teenth annual field day will be staged 
at College Park on May 2 with a half 
dozen attractions on the program. 

While the big day is slated primar- 
ily for the school hoys of the State, 

I 'strict of Columbia and vicinity, with 
a track meet of L3 open events and 
eight closed to county high schools, 
the "side shows" need no bark' 

Every one of .Maryland's varsity 
Uams will be paraded that day, Coach 
Swede Eppley's tracksters against 
Richmond in a meel to be run concur- 
rently with the scholastic competi- 
tion; Bunon Shipley's diamonders 
against a powerful Georgetown nine; 
Les Bopst's racket swingers against 
Catholic University, and in the finale, 
a fitting one. Jack Faber's lacro 
team against Mount Washington, rat- 
ed the king bee of the stick-wielding 

The whole show to the average fan 
will be one buck, but an arrangement 
has been made whereby students can 
see the affair for 25 cents. This is 
through a special ticket, that must be 
obtained from the principal of their 
high school, and it will not be on sale 
the day of the meet. 

Here is the complete program with 
the times:

Football Squad Ends Toil; 

Sessions Encourage Dobson 

SPRIN'G football practice was brought 
to a close after five weeks, with a 
scrimmage with Navy at Annapolis 
on April 18. Previously two scrim- 
mages were staged with Catholic Uni- 
versity and four with George Washing- 

The practice, in chargi Frank 

Dobson, was mainly in such funda- 
mentals as blocking, charging and 
tackling and the search was foi line- 
men. Dobson, although the 1935 frosh, 
with whom he worked mainly in the 
spring drills, were not up to the stand- 
ard he feels that he will get some of 
the needed forwards out of the bunch. 

Jim .Meade, a back, though, was the 
only outstanding soph-to-be next fall 
in the squad. He is from Port Deposit 
and is a brother-in-law of 
Morrison who played football and man-

There have been two improvements 
to the baseball field. An electric score- 
board has been installed just to the 
right of first base base and a "snow 
fence" has been put around the out- 
field. It still takes an honest clout to 
get a homer, as the fence is 3G0 feet 
from the home plate in right and left 
fields and 400 feet in center.
